It's exciting getting new flowers. Was tempted with the bareroot hellebore on the GW offer page but I'm unsure as there is the time debate!! :-/

i often wake up in the night and I prefer swapping to planning the garden rather than work!!! That's why I thought stay in bucket so easy to water and feed. Think I will have a winter if planning. Fun isn't it! just anything that won't pull to the light

i must have known you were going to say that. The purple sensation I have planted quite deep in my corner border, there was only 5 of those. All other bulbs are no bigger than my thumb nail so I have put in pots and will see what happens. 

for some unknown reason I woke at 3 and couldn't stop thinking about my conifer border. Think I may have to give this shady position some more thought. i was wondering if I could split my hostas into buckets and plant one there, but I fear the slugs will murder it!! operation move all tall perennials happened yesterday so there isn't many plants in that border now other than bulbs, pansies and a hellebore, heaucrA and a stocksia that hasn't flowered or grown in 2 years!!!

I ordered some allium bulbs for just the postage cost from gardeners world, they came in october. However today I have another box of them land on my door. So do I call them to let them know or get them set in pots as I have no clue where to put them yet!!!!

Vernun I love this post!

 

used dobbies for seeds But never dared buy plants but may look at these places. Hopefully they will have 'sale' pages, I'm an avid bargain hunter!

Agree GG. I don't drink so what I would spend on alcohol when out now goes to my garden and I'm a pint of black current cordial!!! all my money has gone in equip etc and a few selected items. I try to propagate or take cuttings but sometimes you need something different/new. 2 years in now. Can't wait till next season...
